This could be very useful.

Create a new shortcut.

Under the command line, type in mailto:support@segue.com.

Give it an appropriate name such as SilkTest Help. Now, the next time you click on the mail link, your e-mail program will launch and you will have a mail - with the e-mail address already typed, ready to be sent.

If you want to send mail to more than just one recipient, type in mailto:support@segue.com;mycolleague@mycompany.com . Instead of just sending the mail to one person, you will now be sending it to 2 people. But still some of you ask how to pre-set the subject of the mail as well. Just like HTML mailtos, type in mailto:support@segue.com?subject=SilkTest Problems. Quite simple isn't it?

And you can also use carbon copy: mailto:support@segue.com?cc=mycolleague@mycompany. com or blind carbon copy: mailto:support@segue.com?bcc=wayne@mycompany.com. Here's something to really interest you. You can define the body or contents of the mail itself other than just the subject and recipients like this: mailto:support@segue.com?body=I have a slight problem here

You can string arguments together with the "&" character like this: mailto:support@segue.com?subject=SilkTest Problems &cc=wayne@mycompany.com&body=Body.


The only drawback here is like any other shortcuts, you are only allowed 255 characters in the command line. Use them wisely.
